The third Learning, Teaching and Training Activities of the Erasmus + e-FLIP (Facilitating e-Learning for an Inclusive Pedagogy) project have been hosted in Cuneo from Monday 19th September to Friday 23rd September. The main topic has been the "FLIPPED CLASSROOM" methodology to be implemented through integrated digital teaching in an inclusive way (in order to enhance even students with special educational needs).
During the first day, our guests were welcomed at the Town Hall by the Grandis school head teacher Milva Rinaudo and by councilors Cristina Clerico and Sara Tomatis. The activities were presented in collaboration with the Europe Direct Cuneo Piedmont South West area office.
The partners were then walked through a visit to the Grandis Institute and the Territorial Center for New Technologies and Disability Support. The role of the Grandis in this project is, in fact, the in-depth analysis of the aspects dedicated to inclusive teaching, a theme on which the Italian school system is at the forefront.
The day continued at the Rondò dei Talenti building, a multifunctional space managed by the CRC (Cassa di Risparmio di Cuneo) Bank Foundation. In the multimedia room on the fourth floor, training and training sessions were held on the use of tools for digital and innovative teaching (Popplet, Kahoot, Crowdsignal, Socrative).
The training sessions continued Tuesday with other platforms (Quizlet, Plickers, Cacoo, Canva). The Turkish partners also introduced their e-learning platform on which dissemination of the e-FLIP model is provided.
Davide Martini, head teacher of Istituto Comprensivo "G. Carducci" (Busca) illustrated best practices adopted by his school. The session was also attended by Silvana Rampone, manager of international projects at the Regional School Office of Regione Piemonte.
The day of Wednesday 21 September was dedicated to the visit of the I.S.I.S.S. Magarotto in Torino, a school with study plans comparable to those of the Grandis School but specialized in pupils with deafness as well as other special educational needs, but also open to everyone.
The vice principal accompanied the group through the institute, illustrating the peculiarities and challenges of their teaching model. The meeting represented an opportunity to analyze the particularities of the Italian school system regarding the inclusion of pupils with disabilities and SEN.
The group had then lunch at the Magazzini Oz in Turin, a restaurant / emporium run by disadvantaged people. The main topic of the day was inclusion and SEN student support.
A trip to the Cinque Terre had been organized for the day of Thursday 22 September. Cinque Terre are one of the most popular and well-known tourist destinations in Italy. Our guests were able to relax on the beaches of Monterosso, walk between the alleys of Vernazza and Riomaggiore, taste the delicacies of Ligurian cuisine and be fascinated by the charm of Porto Venere.
The mobility ended on Friday 23 September with the last training sessions (Flipsnack, e-story, Microsoft Sway, Nearpod). In the afternoon the teams discovered the Langhe area and had dinner in Diano d’Alba at the Trattoria nelle Vigne.
